Smart flow for staffing requirements

 Currently there is no commercial software available to measure patient care requirements (ie: minutes of staff/FTE care required) for a hospital or hospital unit.  Smartflow could be used to track this data and provide valuable information regarding patient to nurse ratios in veterinary medicine.  Users could assign a time requirement to complete various parameters and treatments. This data could then be used in analytics to determine historical workloads and staffing numbers, as well as use prospectively to determine staffing numbers required for an upcoming shift.  This data could also be pooled and used to publish evidence based research on the subject.

    Analytics task data - currently only able to compare by DATE, adding ability to filter/compare by time (either specific intervals or free-selected start/end hour of day)

    Also a possibility is examining how often and by how far treatments are performed late on individual shifts or buy individual user.
